Hi Bhupesh,

Thanks a lot for the detailed explanation. They are helpful to reproduce
the issue quickly. From my initial debug, I think that AMD SME +
efi_mm_struct patches + -cpu host (in qemu) are required to reproduce
the issue on qemu.

I have tried the following combinations (all tests are on qemu):
On Linus's tree:
1. With SME and efi_mm and -cpu host -> panics
2. With SME and efi_mm and !-cpu host -> boots
3. With SME and !efi_mm and -cpu host -> boots
4. With SME and !efi_mm and !-cpu host -> boots
5. With !SME and efi_mm and -cpu host -> boots
6. With !SME and efi_mm and !-cpu host -> boots
7. With !SME and !efi_mm and -cpu host -> boots
8. With !SME and !efi_mm and !-cpu host -> boots

On Matt's tree (no SME):
1. With efi_mm and -cpu host -> boots
2. With efi_mm and !-cpu host -> boots
3. With !efi_mm and -cpu host -> boots
4. With !efi_mm and !-cpu host -> boots

Summary:
On Matt's tree (next branch), I am unable to reproduce the issue because
they don't have SME patches.

On Linus's tree, with SME patches
(b1b6f83ac938d176742c85757960dec2cf10e468) and my patches and -cpu host
switch enabled in qemu, I was able to reproduce the issue.

Could you please confirm if you are seeing the same behavior?
Specially on real machines (I think, this is equivalent to -cpu host on
qemu) because in earlier mails you have mentioned that you were able to
reproduce this on Matt's tree, but according to my theory it shouldn't
be the case because Matt's three doesn't have SME patches.
Did you back port (b1b6f83ac938d176742c85757960dec2cf10e468) this commit
to Matt's tree and then applied my patches?

Your confirmation will help us in debugging the right issue.

Regards,
Sai
